Templates: The Inclusion Rider
The Inclusion Rider, developed by civil rights attorney Kalpana Kotagal and Pearl Street Film’s head of strategic outreach Fanshen Cox, is an addendum added to a contract that sets forth a process for hiring and casting to expand and diversify the candidate pool, encourage hiring qualified cast and crew who have been traditionally underrepresented in productions, track progress and create accountability.

An inclusion rider is a contract provision that establishes diversity tracking and benchmark accountability measures. Any functional inclusion rider must contain these 4 key components:
- A commitment to deepening and diversifying hiring pools
- Established hiring benchmarks
- Collection, measurement, and analysis of hiring data
- Implemented accountability measures to support progress
